TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

A seventh straight week of losses for the S&P 500 (C-fund) is the longest streak since 2001. Stocks had a promising start to the week through Tuesday, but stocks sold off hard Wednesday leading to the S&P 500 deepest single day loss since June of 2020 and extending the index to its lowest price of the year. Analysts have been waiting for the S&P 500 to join small cap indices (S-fund) in a bear market (characterized as 20% down from the high). This happened intraday Friday, but it was

An ugly week for stocks gave the C-fund its sixth straight week of losses, but a bear market rally Friday brought the indices out from the depths. The S&P 500 was at the brink of entering a technical bear market going into Friday. Action has been poor for months but it is a fall of 20% from the highs where Wall Street will consider the index in a bull market; the S&P 500 was down 17.6% from its high on January 3rd coming into Friday.

The focus this week was centered around technology company earnings. The indices were dragged around following the reaction of earnings from tech giants such as Meta (Facebook), Apple, Netflix, and Amazon. The last two days were manipulated by the buying triggered by Meta's earnings and new members bringing the S&P 500 (C-fund) back to positive territory for the second time this week. That was followed by Amazon's worst quarterly loss in seven years reported after the bell Thursday. This sparked

An opportunity or a warning sign? Halfway through this last week, stocks looked to be maintaining a decent comeback from the losses of the recent weeks. That ended Thursday after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell spoke of a fair likelihood the FOMC would raise rates by a half point in the upcoming FOMC meeting. This suggestion coming from the Chairman made it a too real of a possibility for investors. Selling ensued following the comments and pursued through Thursday and Friday. This instant
